Voici une bire qui nous ramne au temps des croisades ! Brasse en hommage Godefroy de Bouillon, clbre crois du Xime sicle, la confrrie de la bire de Godefroy a pour vocation entre autre de promouvoir le folklore et les produits locaux, dont la Godefroy rousse fait partie. Celle-ci cre par la brasserie Moortgat en 1982, est dsormais brasse par la brasserie du Bock. Sa robe est dun bel ambr cuivr, pare dun lger voile et surmonte dune mousse crmeuse blanc casse dun cm dpaisseur environ. Le nez est frais voire fleuri avec des notes de crales, de citron, de caramel et une pointe de coriandre. A la dgustation, lattaques est trs dcevante, plate et sans relief. On ressent quelque peu les crales tout de mme. Lamertume arrive donc point. Sans grande intensit, elle en reste nanmoins frache et agrable. Il est surtout regrettable que ni larrire bouche, neutre et trs doutre sur des armes de caramel, ni le final qui replongera la Godefroy rousse dans la fadeur, ne viennent mettre en valeur cette amertume. En conclusion, Godefroy de Bouillon aurait mrit meilleur breuvage avec une bire relativement insipide.

Syfher (400) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 11, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Nice red, pale beer. Not the greatest I must admit : were in front of a beer with a nice red colour with a white, fluffy head. But, the aroma, even if its great, is very subtle, and the taste may be a little fast... No really aftertaste. Try it, but dont expect a lot of it.

VDuquerroux (1589) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle, 33cL. @Pizzeria Il Padrino, Bouillon, July. An orange sparkling beer with brown hues ; light opaque ; big off-white foamy head ; medium retention. Good lacing. Cereal aroma, roast, light caramel, light biscuit, licorice. Light sweet, light dry bitter. Medium body and texture, average to soft carbonation, sweet spicy finish. Overall, a pleasant one, nothing foolish but OK with my pizza.

Alengrin (5156) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Amber-coloured nephew of the Godefroy Blonde, with cream white foam and deep, almost bronze-like amber colour. Sweet caramel malts in the nose, nutty, red berries, pear; taste fruity, nutty malts, medium sweet, simple with thin mouthfeel and insufficient hop bitterness. Boring but not as boring as its blonde counterpart.

erickok (5925) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2014
Amber bodied with a frothy instable nice head. Simple Belgian caramel and doughy malts, strong carbonation in the nose. Dry taste, Belgian yeast, yeasty and classic hops. Nice taste, Belgian but developed and not too sweet. Simple yet not boting and much better than a lot of the Belgian brews around now. Still too classic and not very imaginative, yet I dont mind drinking it. (33cl bottle from Cave Gambrinus SPdC)
